Default [Q] Windows 8/8.1 on Android tablet?

Hello everyone. I am new on this forum.

Is is possible to install Windows 8/8.1 on the Android tablet with 512 GB of RAM, 1 GHz single core/dual core processor?
I have full MSDN subscription which gives me both original Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 and I want to put them in the use. Since in the moment I don't have enough money to buy Surface RT, I want to buy some bad tablet that will be for me only for debugging Windows 8/ Windows 8.1 applications and to go on the internet.

If there is a way, please tell me.

I have never heard of porting Windows to an android device. I really don't deem it possible with the specs you have described. But nothing is impossible. Right?

Maybe I won't be able to use Start Button because Android tablet doesn't have it, but I can use start from the Charm bar.
Also, I believe that those hardware specs would be ok if I turn of some processes and services so that tablet could run faster. As I have already said, that tablet would be only for the internet and the debugging (connect tablet with the PC and run the application on the tablet) and nothing else.I was thinking about USB booting, but I don't know if low end tablets have USB ports.

If those don't have USB ports, can I run the installation of Windows directly from the Android?
